      A fantastic place to stay - quiet, beautiful, great location

      Rooms are very spacious, especially the loft ones with high ceilings. The hotel is well built, beds are comfortable, and the staff is excellent. The location is ideal: far enough from the main road that you don't get bothered by the noise, yet close enough that you can walk to the beach, even if you carry a surfboard, as long as you are reasonably fit: it is a steep and rugged terrain (I find it fun). We particularly appreciated the "quiet after 9pm" policy which is a great plus compared to many hotels in Santa Teresa and Playa Carmen that cater to the party crowd. We were here to relax in a peaceful atmosphere and Canaima Chill House was the perfect getaway for that. It's one of those few places that are better for real than on the photos. Although the slogan includes the word "rustic", the hotel offers full comfort and is very well built. It doesn't have AC but the location on a hill offers natural cooling, complemented by ceiling fans inside the mosquito nets. We stayed 9 days and didn't miss AC once. The staff at Canaima is extremely helpful and goes way beyond the normal call of duty to make sure you have a great experience. Oh, and did I mention that you see plenty of wildlife in the trees surrounding the hotel, including monkeys, birds, iguanas and squirrels? Sometimes the wildlife wakes you up a bit earlier than you'd like... but hey, it's jungle... and if you want to make the best of your stay in Costa Rica you will rise early anyway! I highly recommend Canaima Chill House to any traveler looking for a peaceful, relaxed and beautiful place to stay in Santa Teresa.

      ... home hidden in behind them. It feels like a very natural and isolated place. There are a quite a few people here, and a lot of American ex-pats too, mostly just surfing or learning to surf.

      From all accounts Santa Teresa beach always has good surf and every time that we went to the beach this definitely seemed to be the case. We didn't do as much swimming as we first thought we would, as it was quite rocky (especially at low tide). We did find some ...

      ... isn’t over built, nor does it look like it is just built for tourists, which was great. Still tourist prices, just a little more authentic. A great choice heading to Manuel Antonio!



      That night we checked out El Avion bar, which is a bar within an old US fighter jet. It was so cool, with a little story behind it… During the border fight between Costa Rica and Nicaragua, they suspected foul ...

      ... from Janessa as Red Frog Villas hadn’t any opening for the next couple days. After breakfast I decided to use my rented bicycle for the few hours I had remaining before I had to return it. I headed to the other part of Santa Teresa which I hadn’t seen yet and went to check out the different parts of the beach. After returning my bike around 1:00pm I bought a smoothie and decided to eat at Pasta Basta. This restaurant had a wide variety of food but it was at this ...

      ... can be happy anywhere - perhaps we create that happiness by making it our place. But I think that if you can find "your place", do it! The feeling is magical. There is of course an infinite number of places that could fill this role. Not just one. But seek that feeling of connection to where ...

      No monkeys at breakfast time, so headed off to the Manuel Antonio National Park, which is a rainforest park by the coast and there are some lovely bays with clear water. The trouble is, about 75% of the people who visit Costa Rica visit this park and it has become a tourist trap. There are loads of guides wanting to take your money. others trying to get you to pay for car parking and others selling food and drinks ...
